How do I clean my make up brushes?


It's true that you should clean your brushes often—they can gather a lot of bacteria, and who wants that applied to their face?

Here's a basic cleansing process from Maureen Burke, our Midnight Velvet beauty expert: To clean, simply run under warm water and work a small amount of shampoo through the bristles. When the water runs clear (with no tint from the makeup), reshape them and lay them to dry flat. Don't stand them up to dry, as the moisture then settles and weakens the bond between handle and brush.

  • good

  • you can also blot them with a towel after you rinse them. Liquid soap and water is good too then reshape them! That is important.
